Hewitt and Colby Quadrangle to Get Makeover…Intersection to be 4-Way Stop for Two Weeks

Hewitt and Colby quadrangle

The City is repainting the “quadrangle” at Hewitt and Colby

The intersection of Hewitt and Colby is now a four-way stop for the next two weeks. The City of Everett is doing work on the “quadrangle” above the Hewitt Avenue and Colby Avenue intersection in downtown Everett. The work will require two full closures of the intersection, from Friday night to Monday morning over the next two weekends, while crews sand blast and paint the aging metal structure.

The quadrangle structure is nearly 40 years old, and holds traffic signals, lights and a large tree every holiday season. Contractor crews working for the city will use power tools and sand blasting equipment to remove the existing paint. Then they’ll prime the structure and add a fresh layer of paint to prevent further deterioration.

Crews will close the intersection and build a containment system to prevent contamination during each full weekend closure. The intersection will be closed to vehicle traffic for two consecutive weekends:

· 7 p.m. Friday, Oct. 25, through 7 a.m. Monday, Oct. 28

· 7 p.m. Friday, Nov. 1, through 7 a.m. Monday, Nov. 4

Drivers will follow a signed detour during the closure. Pedestrian access will remain open during the work.
